Public schools to open from February 15, private schools 2 weeks earlier

“Independent schools must delay the date for the reopening of schools for learners to return to school for a period of two weeks from the date of the pronouncement of the minister, on January 15 2021. Independent schools may not open earlier than the two-weeks period ...," the gazette reads.

Basic education department spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga confirmed to TimesLIVE that this meant the private schools could open two weeks after January 15, which is Monday, February 1.

The gazette states that officials may access school premises during the period of closure “for purposes of preparation in anticipation of the reopening of schools”.
